CALCE Support for PHM Center of Excellence in ShenZhen, China

Mar 04, 2009

In collaboration with CALCE, City University (CityU), Hong Kong, is opening a Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Center of Excellence in ShenZhen, China. A large number of companies in China, particularly electronics companies in the greater GuangDong area, which includes ShenZhen, have shown great interest in PHM. Avionics, aerospace, computer, telecommunications and power companies are expected to become members of the new Center.

The CityU PHM Center is being started with a grant of over HK$16M for the first two years in addition to extensive facilities, meeting rooms, and offices. CityU is also supporting grants for three postdoctoral positions and numerous graduate students interested in obtaining a higher education in the field of prognostics and health management. The initial studies of the new CityU PHM Center will focus on advancing system-level PHM hybrid (pattern recognition and physics of failure) algorithms and implementing PHM methods for the Chinese electronics industry. Sensor technologies with embedded PHM algorithms will also be developed. Prof. Pecht is a visiting chair professor at CityU, coordinating the activities of the new CityU PHM Center and its cooperation with CALCE PHM to promote high quality prognostics research and development of state-of-the-art methods and technologies.

CityU is an outstanding university in China with a worldwide reputation in mathematics and engineering. Its new president, Prof. Way Kuo, is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, Academia Sinica (Taiwan), the International Academy for Quality, and the Chinese Academy of Engineering. President Kuo is a strong proponent of design-for-reliability methods and prognostics and is actively supporting this new center with help from Prof. Pecht. Within CityU, there is also strong cooperation with the Center for Electronic Packaging and Assemblies (EPA) of CityU, under the leadership of Chair Professor Y. C. Chan (EPA director and IEEE Fellow). The EPA Center will enable the new CityU PHM Center to utilize the EPA electronics test and analysis resources. In addition, there is synergy with other CityU faculty in the area of PHM for vibrations, shock, aging, and mathematics. For more information on the new CityU PHM Center of Excellence and to participate in this exciting new center, please contact Prof. Pecht (
